Sincere, loving, genuinely happy. You don't often meet people that can be each of those things at once, but this couple and their gorgeous 5-month old are all that and more. To be given the opportunity to capture that, in the setting of their warm + thoughtfully curated home, was truly a privilege.
My newly-turned four-year-old is a huge fan of Curious George. And elevators. And trains. And buses. Unsurprisingly, we read "Curious George in the Big City" fairly often around here--it brings all his interests into convergence in a single story. And so, for his birthday, instead of getting him a new toy or clothes he doesn't care about, we gave him what we hope to be a little more valuable to him: our time & undivided attention, in the form of his own special trip to the city. Although, unlike the original story, he was most definitely not allowed to roam Philly alone. Here's a small--no really, this is less than half of the complete image set--sample of what his big day out looked like. Actual birthday post to follow. Hope you enjoyed your adventure, my little monkey!
As you can see here, darling little Lucy and her parents took me on an awesome city walk for their session. I had so much fun during the shoot, our two hours together really just seemed to vaporize in a flash. This beautiful family was so kind & easy to work with; I could just tell, from the moment we first met, that we were all on the same page & the whole shoot would come together perfectly. And that's exactly what happened.
